        No. 10 / Supreme Virtue for double SATB choir. Autograph musical manuscript of the complete full score

      . 29 pp. + 2 pp. of additional manuscript apparently not included in the final version. Oblong folio (278 x 208 mm.). Unbound. Notated in pencil on 16-stave music manuscript paper. Folded. Signed and dated New York, Jan- April [19]97.. Supreme Virtue was commissioned by the Dale Warland Singers with the support of the Jerome Foundation and the Alice M. Ditson Fund of Columbia University. The text consists of an English translation of verses from the "Tao te Ching." It was first recorded by the Seattle-based chamber choir Esoterics on the Terpsichore label in the winter of 2008. "For a few years I was the tenor section leader of a choir in Washington, and in singing with and composing for them I'd become more and more interested in the quasi-instrumental vocal gesture. Stephen Mitchell's pellucid translation of this verse of the Tao te ching - a series of moral challenges all beginning with the words "Can you?" - spurred me to explore this idea at length. The singers, divided into two SATB choirs, intone the first question in a dusky C-minor against a sighing backdrop of wind sounds: then, as the first choir utters the text's first challenge, the second choir refracts their words into marimba-like repeated notes, as if the long lines of the first choir were subjected to a kind of aural strobe. As the questions become tougher, so do the sounds: tenors and altos stab into the texture with horn-like interruptions, and the phrase "Can you?" disrupts the unwavering four-four pulse with insistent threes and twos. At a peak of intensity, a looping soprano-alto line spirits us away from pulse and chord, leading first to a melodic meditation based on the vowels of "Can you?" and then to a cadenza, in which chords appear and vanish into a shimmering, ever-present curtain of sound. A vision of equanimity is intoned in the open fifths of (both Western and Eastern) chant: then, as if elated by its discovery ("this is the supreme virtue") the chorus reworks its "Can you?" motive: a nudging half-step expands to a whole step, the harmony brightens to B-flat, and, in rhythms now more jubilant than insistent, the score spins to closure."

        India - New Delhi - Cllection/Series of eight (8) original photographs.

      New Delhi, 2008.. Original photographs on archival paper. 19 cm x 19 cm. From the library of irish photographer John Minihan. Each single photograph titled and with John's copyright-stamp and signature verso.. John Minihan is an Irish photographer, born in Dublin in 1946 and raised in Athy, County Kildare. At the age of 12 he was brought to live in London, and went on to become an apprentice photographer with the Daily Mail. At the age of 15 he won the Evening Standard amateur photography competition. At 21 he became the youngest staff photographer for the Evening Standard. For thirty years he remained in London, returning every year to his hometown of Athy to record the people and their daily lives. The work of Minihan in Athy makes up a large part of his canon. Minihan began taking photos in Athy when he was 16. The photos are an attempt to document the lives of the ordinary people of the town in their day to day business and also in times of joy and sadness, notably during the wake of a woman called Katy Tyrrell. In between documenting Athy on visits home, Minihan continued his career on Fleet Street, which included the iconic snap of the 19-year-old Lady Diana Spencer in the garden of the nursery at which she worked, the morning sun to her back, her legs in silhouette through her skirt. Diana had just been announced as the Prince of Wales's love interest and photographers raced to take her photo, Minihan having the fortune to turn up first. Over the years Minihan developed a close relationship with many writers and his photographs of Samuel Beckett show a particular affinity between the two men. Minihans photos of Beckett are some of his best known, one in particular is described as one of the greatest photos of the twentieth century. William S. Burroughs once referred to Minihan as "a painless photographer". Minihan is perhaps best known for his photographs of Samuel Beckett. Minihan first expressed a desire to photograph Beckett in 1969, following Becketts winning of the Nobel Prize for literature, having noticed that all the available photos of Beckett were of a poor quality; 'We were running a story but discovered there were only two very vague images of Beckett taken many years before. It was like he didn't exist - that was the moment I decided I wanted to meet this man and take his photograph.' Minihan first encountered Beckett in London in 1980, while Beckett was working on a production of one of his own plays, Endgame. Minihan met Beckett in the Hyde Park hotel and showed him some of his photos of Athy to break the ice. The two met on a number of occasions over the next few years, but it was not until 1985 that they met in Paris. They arranged to meet in the restaurant of the Hotel PLM, a regular haunt of Beckett. At ten to five, with the light fading, Minihan took the photo that would go on to be called by some as the photograph of the twentieth century. John Calder credited Minihan with capturing, 'the introspective, infinitely sad gaze of a man looking into the abyss of the world's woes'. Among his numerous photographic publications are Photographs: Samuel Beckett (1995); Shadows from the Pale, Portrait of an Irish Town (1996); and An Unweaving of Rainbows, Images of Irish Writers, 1996. He is currently a freelance photographer specialising in 'the arts'. His book of photographs of Samuel Beckett was published in 1995. His photographs of Athy have been exhibited throughout the world. He was given the freedom of Athy in 1990. Minihan currently lives and works in West Cork. Minihan's many exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world include the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, 1984; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1986; the National Portrait Gallery, London 1987/8 and the October Gallery, London 1990 as well as the Guinness Hop Store, Dublin 1991.

Please don't hesitate to ask for more details and photos. Extraordinary collectible indeed! "The Shadow of the Wind" is one of four novels that could be interconnected, that could share some characters, some plot-lines, some elements, but that could be read in any order. My ideas was to create some kind of labyrinth of stories into which you could enter through any door. Depending what door you enter, you could read one or two of these stories or all of them in a new order. "The Shadow of the Wind" was in some ways the first act of the whole story, although it is not a sequential story." (Carlos Ruiz Zafon) All our books are shipped bubble-wrapped in sturdy card-box.

        De prospectiva pingendi

      Aboca Edizioni, Sansepolcro 2008 - [Facsimile da Collezione]Nel trattato, composto verosimilmente tra il 1472 e il 1475, è proposta una serie di problemi di riduzione prospettica, dai più semplici ai più complessi, studiati inmodo da introdurre gradatamente alla nuova tecnica con dimostrazioni pratiche. L'Artista pone una serie di quesiti e risponde con la costruzione della prospettiva tramite disegni geometrici e illustrazioni.Il pregiato facsimile realizzato da Aboca Museum Edizioni, ripropone il trattato conservato nella Biblioteca Panizzi di Reggio Emilia (Ms. Regg. A 41/2, XV secolo), con tutta la maestosità della nobile legatura e dei cento disegni autografi di Piero, elementi che costituiscono un valore aggiunto per quest'opera di notevole importanza storica, artistica e scientifica. Aboca Museum conferma, con questa pubblicazione artistica la volontà di valorizzare la cultura storica del proprio territorio, la Valtiberina Toscana, affiancando l'interesse classico per le piante medicinali. IL COFANETTO Il prezioso cofanetto contiene, insieme al facsimile, il relativo commentario, che spiega l'opera nei dettagli rendendola facilmente comprensibile. Rivestito in tela "imitlin" nera, il cofanetto è rifinito con decori in oro a caldo. Ogni esemplare del facsimile è numerato ed è accompagnato da un certificato di garanzia. IL COMMENTARIO Il commento critico presenta le innovative "lezioni di prospettiva" di Piero della Francesca. L'approfondita analisi scientifica, resa semplice e comprensibile dalla perizia degli autori, è illustrata da una serie di immagini suggestive ed eloquenti.

Begun in 1975 & continuing, the Plays now number ninety-three. My intention has always been to make one hundred. Landscape is the vocabulary of the Plays, as landscape can be a living source of power. Text accompanies the images to enhance, contrast, & explicate the goals of the series: reminiscence, inquiry, reconciliation. The format is unchanging, each little square within the whole serves as a discovery of sensibilities near, far, old, new.The Plays were stimulated by Ezra Pounds Cantos, spirit plays of Japans Noh theatre & W. B. Yeats, music. Their character derives from sojourns in the Midwest, West, & Japan, & journeys between. Love, longing, mysteries predominate the many themes contained with nature in the series. Even after thirty-three years they reveal new paths. Image or additional images available upon request

        The History of Plural Marriage among the Mormon People

      Genola, UT: Pioneer Publishing, 2008. First editions. Seven volume set. 419, 517, 454, 429, 441, 464, 430 pp. Octavo [21.5 cm]; black cloth with gilt titles and borders on front boards and backstrips. All volumes fine. & Comprehensive work on Mormon polygamy by fundamentalist Arnold Boss (1894-1969). Boss began working on this history in the late 1920s or early 1930s and continued to research and work on it for the following two decades. Boss wrote to the Huntington library in 1953 that he was "far from being through." These works cover a century of Mormon polygamy, from Joseph Smith's revelation in 1831 to Heber J. Grant's tenure as LDS President. Arnold Boss was one of fifteen men incarcerated in the Utah State penitentiary in 1945 for practicing polygamy. These fifteen men were asked to sign an affidavit stating that they would no longer practice or promote plural marriage, the majority of the men signed. Boss stated before the board of pardons a year later "No, rather than sign that [paper] and give up my wives I would prefer to be taken out and shot." Boss (as well as Louis Kelsch and Charles Zitting) stayed in jail for another year because of his defiance.

      New York: JMc & GHB, 2008. Fine in a fine jacket, housed in the publisher's slipcase.. Deluxe Edition. Small quarto in slipcase. Letter P of 26 lettered copies, SIGNED by Christopher Wool and Richard Hell. Includes an original word drawing in graphite pencil by Wool and Hell pairing "penis" and "peril," additionally signed by both artists, and bound into the book. (There were 1576 copies in total: 1500 of the trade edition in paperback, 50 numbered copies in hardcover, and 26 lettered copies such as this one.) Christopher Wool's word images are among the most sought after pieces in contemporary art. This collaboration with Richard Hell, one of the originators of punk music, explores the fusion of conceptual poetry and art by pairing words like incest and nicest, slave and salve, anus and stuns, perils and penis, etc. The eye is not quite sure what it sees, which is the point, sport.
